Hi ladies! I am a member of the August 14 board, but I thought I would ask your more military specific advice on this one, in addition to their feedback:
My husband has finally received orders to move us from Fort Riley (Kansas) to Fort Benning (Georgia). We knew this was coming, and I am really excited for this move since we will be closer to family in NC, but now that it is getting closer, I am getting really nervous. My due date is August 30th, and our moving timeline is: Movers coming to pack September 11th, 12th, and 15th, picking up on the 16th, and us leaving to drive there (about 15 hours) on the 17th.
Obviously, I am worried about things like going over my due date, but even if I deliver early or on time, moving preparations and driving halfway across the country with a brand new baby are terrifying. I worry that I could still be in pain and also how she will react in the car (truck actually, with me, hubby, and two dogs, towing my SUV). I assume we will be stopping every couple hours for me to nurse her and change her diaper. Has anyone else experienced this before? Any tips or advice?
